      I have some questions for the Malankara Catholic Rite Mission. Please
      Clarify


      1. The People and the Malankara Catholic Prelates claim the H B
      Baselious Clemis Can Use the title `Catholicose'. But what about the
      letter issued by the Holy See (PRONT N: 2581/2005/h) which Cleary
      mentions that `no Catholicose' title has been issued to the Head of
      Malankara Catholic rite. Decisions taken by the Holy See is normally
      applicable to all rites, but what is very special to the Malankara
      Catholic Rite? Is the Malankara Catholic rite above the Holy See?

      2. There is only one His Holiness in the Roman Catholic Church and
      that is His Holiness Pope Himself. Then How does anther `HIS HOLINESS'
      possible in one of most tiny rites in the Roman Catholic Church?? The
      Malankara Catholic Rite has publicly displayed boards at Trivandrum
      and elsewhere addressing their Primate as His Holiness!! Are they
      still under the Control of Rome or does HB Baselious Cleemis
      considered above the status of His Holiness Poe by the rest of the
      Roman Catholic rites and members?? Then What about the Status of His
      Eminence Cardinal and Major Archbishop Mar Varkey Vithayathil and
      Archbishop His Grace Most. Rev.Dr. M. Soosa Pakiam??? Are they both
      above below His Holiness Pope or HB Baselious Cleemis???

      3. In the recent books, notes, documents issued by Vatican it has been
      clearly mentioned that the title of the Primate of the Malankara
      Catholic rite is Major Archbishop, nothing more or nothing less!!!

      4. According to the beliefs and traditions of the Roman Catholic
      Church there is one Apostolic Throne and that is the Throne of
      St.Peter and His Holiness Pope is enthroned on it. The how can be
      another Throne (Throne of St Thomas) in the Same Roman Catholic
      Church?? How can His Beatitude Baselius Cleemis Enthroned on the
      Apostolic Throne of St.Thomas???

      5. The title Catholicose of the all East has been granted by the
      Jerusalem Synod. The First Catholicose of the East was St.Thomas
      Himself. The Present Catholicose of the East is His Holiness Baselius
      Marthoma Dydioms I who is the 90th successor to the throne of St
      Thomas. Then how can His Beatitude Baselius Cleemis claim that he is
      Enthroned on the Apostolic Throne of St.Thomas???

      6.The Vatican Has recognized the Supreme Primate of the Malankara
      Orthodox Church as the 'Catholicose of the Apostolic Throne of
      St.Thomasand Malankara Metropolitan'.

      Check below what the Holy See has mentioned about the title of the
      Primate of the Syr-Malankara Church.

      http://www.cnewa.us/ecc-bodypg-us.aspx?eccpageID=66&IndexView=toc

      It has been clearly mentioned that the title is - Major Archbishop of
      Trivandrum of the Syro-Malankars.

      It is always better to remember the following

      "You may fool some people some time
      You may fool some people all the time,
      But you cannot fool all people all the time"
